Contact us today to schedule your interactive facility tour that will engage and excite anyone with an interest in animals. Our tours are intimate and educational and packed full with unique animal-encounters only Wild Wonders can offer. Each group is assigned their very own personal tour guide, led by one of our professional biologists and animal trainers. Your guide will introduce you to the wonders of many amazing animals and promises an experience of education and fun you will not forget. All tours take place at our wildlife education and conservation center, located on 5+ acres in Bonsall.
Tour prices are $30 for adults and $15 for children under 17. Children under 2 are free. There is a minimum $130 fee for all tours.
Want to bring your school group, work colleagues, church, or club to visit Wild Wonders? We offer field trips for up to 60 people. The group begins their adventure together on our lawn area where our professional keepers bring some of our animal ambassadors out to meet the group. Interactions with ambassadors is offered for kids over 5. After these introductions, large groups will be broken into smaller groups, each of which will have its own guide who will host them around the facility. The entire experience takes about an hour.
Discounted pricing for adults and children under 17 is based on the number of people in the field trip. When you make your reservation request, list the approximate size of the group and we will confirm pricing with you.
This is a rare and unique opportunity to get up close and personal with binturongs, foxes, kinkajous, pythons and the rest of our animal ambassador family while learning more about the important roles these animals have in the wild!
Our Tours and Field Trips are all behind-the-scenes style guided tours. They last about one hour and include a variety of unique and educational animal interactions and encounters not available at your typical zoo.
Each tour will include photo opportunities and guests will have the opportunity to feed and interact with animals!

For guests with accessibility challenges, please note this on the reservation request form, and we can work with you on a plan for a successful visit. Closed-toed, comfortable walking shoes are recommended, as is bringing water to drink.

- Just wanted to let you know that our day at Wild Wonders was INCREDIBLE!!! It was an amazing place - we were so impressed with Stephanie and Kimberly, and all of the women who so passionately take care of these animals, and educate the public. The facility was immaculate, the animals all seemed very happy and well adjusted, and our time helping them out with some of their duties was an experience that none of us will soon forget. We had 2 teenagers with us who are rarely impressed by anything, and they were completely blown away by the experience. This is really, truly something we will never forget, and we look forward to getting a chance to return there again soon.
